Lindblad Expeditions announced today that effective March 1, all guests 12 years of age and over who completed their primary vaccination series more than five months ago, are required to present proof of Covid-19 booster vaccines prior to embarkation.

New York-based Lindblad said it accepts any FDA-recommended vaccine: Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson (Janssen). Boosters can be received any time prior to embarkation.  

For non-U.S. guests, the Lindblad will also accept Astra-Zeneca.  Guests with another WHO-recommended vaccine should check with their expedition specialist when making their reservation.

Lindblad said its dedicated Covid-19 Global Policy Team meets daily to keep their fingers on the pulse of what’s happening globally, and as the latest research and public health recommendations evolve, so do the company's policies.

Lindblad continues to update its protocols in accordance with local, state, federal, and international regulations and guidelines in the places its ships explore.
